The girls have had loads of fun with this easter sensory bin and it took very little setting up.

I just used some lentils and some green mung beans to make a very rough egg shape. Then I laid out a bowl of all their Easter bit and pieces. There are fluffy chicks and bunnies and plastic eggs.

It didn’t take long for them to find it after school and get stuck in.

Sometimes I provide two sensory bins for the twins but sometimes I think it is good for them to share. They don’t always play at the same time anyway. I loved seeing how they worked together with this one.

The twins have watched some chicks hatch at nursery and they enjoyed playing with the fluffy chicks and recreating how they held them.

Each of the chicks was given a name.
